Mouton is active in designing structures and supporting structural studies, with a strong emphasis on architectural projects. The philosophy of the engineering office is that structure must be seen as a part of the architecture and – like architecture – has to be designed: there must always been searching for a functional, technical, economical and spatial solution for a specific question. Moreover, it is often the case that the structure is inseparable from the architecture and structure plays a prominent role in the perception of the design. The ambition is to develop – for every project again – a strong structural concept and – as doing so – to help shaping the design. This happens preferably in a team with the architect and other construction partners, and from an early design phase. In this way the structure is no longer the slave of architecture. The inspiring interaction between the partners is the best guarantee for optimal results.
Mouton scrl is created early 2015 from Studieburo Mouton sprl and builds on what started as the independent practice of Guy Mouton. Thanks to the continuity within the team our office can count on decades of experience in the field of architecture and stability. A huge luggage of knowledge and expertise guarantees the realization of high quality projects of various kinds.
